Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer
If you are referring to the Control Lock on a Whirlpool Duet, Kenmore Elite, or Maytag Epic series front loader, this is actually a safety feature that enables the consumer to lock the control panel to prevent children from manipulating the controls and accidentally starting the appliance.
With the lock on, the control panel is disabled and you cannot use any of the controls, except the button to unlock it. It can inadvertently be set following a power outage, leaning against the control panel, or pressing and holding the wrong button. This is usually not an indication of a malfunction.
The following link explains how to lock/unlock this feature:
These instructions are also printed on the front panel of the appliance and in the owner's manual.
If this does not correct your problem, then you may have a more significant problem other than a simple operator control button issue (such as an operator console problem or main control board issue). Please post back and let me know if you need further assistance.

I appreciate your post, philip hunter!
From my understanding the control panel on your Electrolux range is locked. On the control panel you should see a button near a lock symbol, typically it is labeled control lock, and if you hold that button down for three to five second it should release the control panel. If that does not help release the panel I would suggest performing a reset and you can do that by disconnecting the power from your range for ten minutes. Hopefully this helps. -Matt
